Nintendo didn't exactly have a stellar E3 with only a few enticing games unveiled at the show. Nintendo's stock price is now taking a beating and some are blaming its lackluster announcements at E3 2018 for the declining share price. Many investors have doubts concerning Nintendo’s ability to hit its hardware and software sales goals. The most recent stock decline happened this week on the Nikkei, which is a stock market index for the Tokyo Stock Exchange. The Nikkei recorded a decline of -5.27% for Nintendo's stock. Nintendo thinks it can still meet its goal of shipping 20 million consoles before the end of its fiscal year. Outgoing Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima had a final meeting... Read more...
During E3 2018, one of the coolest game projects that was talked about came from CD Projekt Red and a title called Cyberpunk 2077. The devs rolled out a demo of the game that was 50 minutes long that had a mockup of the character creation system in it. In that creation system was a pair of generic male and female avatars on a blue background, both completely nude. The character's genitalia was covered by pixelated boxes in the demo and that was done for the E3 demo only. In the final version of the game that launches for players, those boxes are expected to be removed. Why the boxes in the demo? CD Projekt Red didn't want to have the press sidetracked by talk of nudity in the game, or to... Read more...
PC gamers and console gamers are sometimes rivals, with each camp touting their platform as the best. We all know #PCMasterRace is where it's at of course. If you venture to E3 it certainly seems as if consoles are the platform that most developers and publishers focus on. Sure, many of the games that you see at E3 are offered on PC, but it's rare to see the PC platform take the forefront in any of the keynotes at the show. However, as in years past, PC gamers got their own show at their own venue that ran concurrently with E3 called the PC Gaming Show. There were some very cool games talked about at the event from different publishers. The show did include a slew of new games, but many were... Read more...
E3 has kicked off and EA's press conference has gone down giving us an idea of what the publisher and its developers are working on. EA talked about some big games at the conference including a new Star Wars title, a sequel to Unravel, and a glimpse at the highly anticipated BioWare game Anthem that lands next February. We learned last week that Crackdown 3 for the Xbox had been delayed and is expected to launch in February as well. The rub with E3's conference for those hoping for something new is that all of the big games were already known. Perhaps the most anticipated game EA talked about is the BioWare blockbuster Anthem that is coming in February. Executive producer Mark Darrah... Read more...
Gamers have been patiently waiting for the next game in the Crackdown franchise. Crackdown 3 is the next installment and last summer the game was expected to launch alongside the Xbox One X, but that didn’t happen. Instead, the game was delayed with Sumo Digital and Microsoft pushing the title to a promised spring 2018 launch. Microsoft has confirmed another delay for Crackdown 3, and now promises that the game will launch in February 2019. At least this time out Microsoft has given a specific release month rather than a vague "this fall" or "this spring." Microsoft has also promised that more Crackdown 3 content will be shown off at E3 this Sunday. Microsoft wrote, "Our fans' response... Read more...
